My predictions along with the other writers’ will be going up on ringthedamnbell.WordPress.com this weekend, but here’s an early look at mine:
Shorty G vs. Sheamus – SHEAMUS
This one is a no-brainer. Shorty G has zero momentum and is in a tailspin right now, while Sheamus is the returning heel looking to re-build credibility and at least get himself into the mid-card title picture.

WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: CEDRIC ALEXANDER VS. BUDDY MURPHY (c)
Fun action early with both guys showing the crowd what they’re in for with dueling displays of athleticism. An appreciative “205” chant breaks out. Tremendously quick pace and great chain wrestling by both guys. If you’re not watching this show, START! You can watch ANY TIME on demand! And it’s only an hour! Much less demanding than Raw or SmackDown, and lately it’s been much better TV.

On the kickoff show, the Raw women’s team is already fighting themselves when Ruby Riott brings up Anvil’s sunglasses. Why did SmackDown pick Mandy Rose and not Nikki Cross?? Lame.

So I didn’t do any reviews on NXT, NXT UK, or 205 Live this week because I watched the shows on an almost-four-hour drive home from work on Thursday night. Not a good time for reviews, and I had a long-ass work week. So they were all really good. There you go.

TAG TEAM BATTLE ROYAL
So we’re going to find out who captains the Raw tag team Survivor Series team. Why does Lucha House Party get three guys? I think Strowman will win yet another tag team battle royal. Strowman cleans house. That battel royal did not last long. Oh shit, someone gave Strowman a black eye. Stephanie McMahon comes out, probably to get these hands. Stephanie gets Braun on Raw’s Survivor Series team, and Braun gets Baron Corbin, and possibly another Universal Championship match.

Security surrounds the ring as Baron Corbin enters. I’m sure the security is to protect Corbin from Braun Strowman. Corbin of course names himself captain of the Raw men’s Survivor Series team, but can’t compete. Makes no sense. He names Ziggler, McIntyre, and Strowman as the first three members. He taught Braun to respect authority at Crown Jewel. And Braun will teach Corbin how to eat through a straw.

TRISH STRATUS & LITA VS. ALICIA FOX & MICKIE JAMES w/Alexa Bliss
Leah is understandable slower with her offense, but she still looks good. Trish looks really good, and I think that’s also a testament to Alicia Fox’s athleticism and ability to make others look good. That’s certainly not to take anything away from Trish. Trish and Mickie punching each other in the face is fun. Did Mickie punch Trish in the poon when she was holding her upside down on the ropes?

Krysia and I make our Evolution picks. Most of these are the same picks I made at Ring the Damn Bell, but a little has changed. Krysia will be there in person, so follow our Twitter and Instagram for live updates!

Reigns looks distraught. I… have no words. Man, this is as real as real gets. I really don’t know what to say. Love or hate the character, they loved the man tonight. Such a real moment between him and the crowd, and him and his Shield brothers. There’s a lot of moments that make me embarrassed to be a wrestling fan, but this one with the way the crowd reacted, this made me proud to be one. We love you Joe.

OPENING SEGMENT: BRAUN STROWMAN, DREW McINTYRE, & DOLPH ZIGGLER
The heels run down the Shield, talk about who is going to win the WWE World Cup, then are interrupted by The Shi…. nope, Roman and Seth. Seth calls himself the best in the world. He did that this past week and asked said he wanted a match against Kenny Omega. Omega and Tommaso Ciampa responded. I’m all for that mess of humanity. Rollins gets some cheap Philly pops. None of the promos were that good or that long. I wasn’t a huge fan of this opening. I think it’s because this feud has been stale and boring.
